Frasca’s Lane Chardonnay
The Frasca's Lane Chardonnay Winemaking
We source the grapes for the Frasca's Lane Chardonnay from Victoria’s cool climate wine region King Valley. This wine is part of the Single Vineyard range from Nugan Estate. This Single Vineyard range of wines is dedicated to showcasing the best varietals from Australia’s finest wine growing regions. Chief Winemaker, Daren Owers, along with the winemaking team will craft each wine within this range with care to reflect its unique varietal and regional characteristics.
As soon as the winemaking team pick the grapes, they gently press them. The fruit for this wine will go through harvest during March. The grapes will then endure a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel vats & French oak barrels. The wine is left to mature in French oak for 12 months, where the team will batonage monthly. We do this under the watchful eye of our Chief Winemaker. And they do this to add complexity, and enhance fruit and oak integration, prior to final blending and bottling.
This wine is pale straw in appearance with a youthful green hue. It has aromas of peach and also nectarine, with mixed spice overtones. This Chardonnay presents a rich mouth filling palate of stone fruit biscuit and yeast notes. Additionally, you will also notice the wine has a crisp acidity. This acidity will complement the generously full fruit flavours on the palate.

This wine is the perfect pair with seared tuna nicoise, gnocchi with sage. It will also go well with burnt butter sauce or pork and fennel sausages with Paris mash.
